The Superstition Mountains rise out of the desert floor and border the eastern reaches of the Phoenix metropolis. The mountains are a natural mecca ripe with hiking trails galore and they even sustain a rebounding wildlife population. The western face of the mountains are a dramatic uplift shooting out of the desert floor, creating an exciting photographic opportunity from Lost Dutchman State Park. This also serves as an adventurous gateway into the deeper depths of the mountains to areas like Siphon Draw, Flat Iron, and beyond. Deeper in the mountains the famous backcountry destination Reavis Ranch is found tucked away in the mountains. Another exciting feature for motorists is the Apache Trail which winds through the northern parts of the Superstitions past Canyon Lake, Apache Lake, and culminating at Roosevelt Lake.
